Male or female cat : which to choose?

You decide to adopt a cat. However, you must ask yourself the question and know what kind of cat you would like. Rather male or rather female? What is the difference between the 2 sexes? We can help you to see more clearly.

Don't worry, the differences in choosing between a male or female cat are not numerous. Their personalities are hardly exacerbated by their sex. Especially after the castration of the male, which tends to make the differences decrease even more.

    If you choose a male

    Are males more distant than females and less cuddly? Not necessarily. There is finally no rule in this matter. Male cats are often more massive, a little bit bigger. They are not all more independent or solitary than a female. This characteristic fades away quickly if you have him neutered. A castration which will have to take place around 6 months, at the time of its puberty, at the veterinary surgeon.

    The only real difference with the female is in the way the male marks his territory. He will do it by means of jets of urine inside your home. A different way of proceeding with the simple elimination, which will be done in his litter box and that he will cover afterwards. In the case of urine spray marking, your cat will locate a suitable spot for marking, sniff it and then urinate on it. Spaying allows you to reduce or even eliminate this behavior.

    If you choose a female

    The only trickier periods for a cat are the hotter periods. She will meow more than usual, especially during the night. She may be more cuddly and affectionate at that time. These periods are not really predictable in the cat, but rather irregular.

    It is possible to sterilize the cat and thus avoid these periods of heat. This also avoids unwanted gestations. Sterilization removes any risk of infection of the uterus or risk of tumors of the uterus and ovaries. Early oophorectomy reduces the risk of developing breast tumors later on to zero. It is best to sterilize it before the age of one year.

    In summary

    There is hardly any difference between a male cat and a female cat. The only differences tend to fade away once the castration in the male and the sterilization in the female have been done. Furthermore, it is also possible that a cat that has not been neutered will never mark its territory with urine sprays. It is also possible that a cat in heat never meows and keeps quiet.
